Overture Center for the Arts - Promenade Hall

Esteemed performance artist, Rain Wilson, will be joined by First Wave alum Myriha Burton and other artists to perform pieces that will broaden, deepen and stimulate conversations about police brutality and how it can be changed. This comes at a time when tensions are running high in cities throughout America around the death of black and brown bodies at the hands of police. Ultimately the show will spark empowerment for those who have been the targets and remind them that they are powerful and inspire all to be a part of a rebirth of thought. A talk back with the artists and performers and a panel discussion featuring prominent community leaders will immediately follow the performance.
